I am getting ready to redo the braking system and have found that there was no hardware used on the pads. My book says to replace the anti-raddle and retaining clips the way they were removed. But they are not there to remove so I don't how to replace them.
My manual doesn't have a diagram, and the hardware kit didn't either. Does anyone out there know how to do this or where I can get a picture of their placement?

I'm don't know what kind I have. But the images that you posted show a caliper with 2 guide pins. Mine only have 1.

This is the hardware kit that I have. Will I be using all of the clips or just some of them?

Probably just some of them I may not have any pics of that however ok pics show what I've found not real good and I think the items I've pointed out in your pic will be the ones you need but only 3 not 4 see picsand instructions.

These pics look just like what I got. I will do the repairs later today after I get the drums and rotors turned or replaced.
I will let you all know how the job turns out

The front brakes went good. Took about 45 minutes. The clips went on fine.
I didn't get the rear brakes done because I don't have a socket that fits it. I don't even know how big it is. It is smaller than the front (32mm). Any ideals what size I need?

I'm assuming ithis is front wheel drive, you will need a pair of wire cutters to take the cotter pin out then channel locks will work for removing the nut it is not on that tight. When retightening the nut tighten then move back one so a new cotter pin can go ins see instructions. Channel locks can also take off cap
